BBTB2 Strawberry Challenge

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, whether you're a mom of children or furry critters, I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday.
This week's BBTB2 Challenge was to use a strawberry cut.  Strawberries always make me think of Mother's Day because my mom always made strawberry shortcake for my grammies on that day.  The strawberry I used was cut from Hello Kitty Greetings. I used a black cardstock for the base card, and fruity patterned papers for the background. I really liked the strawberry and lime patterned paper.  I added felt leaves to the top of the strawberry, a paper flower, bling flower brad, chipboard tag, and finally some black Stickles to bling up the seeds.  I punched the corners of the card and layer, then threaded baker's twine around creating a border.  Yummy!  Check out the other designer's creations at BBTB2!

Miles of Smiles,
